Thanks. I am thinking of running this battery with it:

Will a 13T work with a 3800kv because ofna includes a 13t with the 80% assembled no electronics kit. sorry for asking so many questions......im kinda new to hobby rc cars in general. ive really only used rtrs so far and that doesnt require that u know anything about rc cars.

Joining the 10TT family

Picked a 10TT up last week. Spent most of the week trying to figure out where to mount the ESC. This is what I eventually ended up with, which I'm really happy with.

13 will be a tad slow. Give it a try you have nothing to lose. A new pinion is only $10 should it not work.

** Front arms.
** Front hinge pins and bushes
** Front hinge pin holders (front and back)

Question #2 - The Castle MMPro and 3800 kv 1406 Motor (4 pole) - Check E-Bay price are way better than any where else.
Question #3 - Don't know, once again, if you are on a budget, keep what you've got for now.
Question #4 - I'm using a Futaba BLS451 - other options out there I'm sure.
Question #5 - If you are on a budget, than stick with the lid you have.

Good Luck!!

As suggested The Castle MMPro and 3800 kv 1406 Motor (4 pole). Run it on a 16 pinion and it will be quick and run very cool - highly recommended!!

Ofna Hi-Down Force Wing part# 40906 to 40909 (4 colors) http://www.ofna.com/body-wings.php

I have been using one of theese - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=8771
Its been going strong since a week after the TTs were released. It has seen 2 seasons of racing and at least 1 hour of practice a week. Value for less than $20

Associated t4 shells from proline and J Concepts, fit well if cut correctly - search this thread...

Cheers Matt
ok greak thanks... why dont they sell MMP with a 3800KV combo??

also i see people running slash rear tires looks nice but seems to look more like the tires are in more closer to the body.. is there a off set hex 12mm adaptor they sell that will fit? make it bit wider out...

thanks ill be ordering my parts soon..

Well, mine should turn up any day this week. So excited!
But, I've only currently got a eZRun 60A ESC and I read just a page back that people were having thermal issues I guess I need a 120A I will be using a Velineon motor (3500KV) so I think the motor should be fine.

Anyone running a 60A ESC without issue? Should I be fine to run it for a week or 2 until a new ESC arrives?

Guys, any suggestions on a 3s pack to use with a MMP/3800kv? I'm looking at the Turnigy Nano-Tech 5000mah 3S 35~70C Lipo Pack (Dimensions: 150x49x26mm) but I'm not sure if it will fit (may be a couple of mm too long)?

You can run it with the 60 but I wouldnt do any serious bashing with it. An 1/8 scale track might even be to much. I blew two 60A esc's before I got the point and bought a 100A. Now it only heats up when Im doing speed runs and such with buds, but still pretty cool considering. Maybe set the timing and such low on your 60a, that may help.

Actually the Slash 4X4 Tires/Wheels are perfect since the off-set puts them right where the Stock Hyper 10TT tire/wheels would be.
